Hyundai teases new bewinged sports car

Hyundai is established to expose a radical new athletics motor vehicle as element of the N day on July 15, and it seems to be to be quite distinct to anything at all we’ve seen from the model so significantly.

The car is beneath a cover so there is only so considerably information and facts we can glean, but a huge spoiler (or maybe two rear fins), sloping front conclusion and a minimal trip height are all element and parcel of the new design. The teaser almost gives off Ferrari F40 vibes…

But genuinely, we have bought no notion what Hyundai is preparing. The graphic has the caption “envisioning the long term of N with legacy”, so perhaps it will be some throwback ‘90s racer layered with Hyundai’s pixel styling with an electric powertrain? Probably a GT3 strategy, like what Toyota is functioning on? Perhaps it is the most recent edition of the sporting activities car it was functioning on with Rimac?

Whatever Hyundai is planning with this, we’re interested.

Whatsoever Hyundai is setting up with this, we’re interested.

Or maybe it’s the last hurrah of the petrol engine for N, and we’re about to get some insane new combustion sports motor vehicle before profits are banned in Europe.

Study Extra:
* Hyundai demonstrates off Ioniq 6 retro streamliner
* First travel evaluate: Kia EV6
* Street exam evaluation: Hyundai Ioniq 5
* Hyundai all but verified to be functioning on Ioniq 5 N

The profile does not very glimpse correct for a possible LMDh vehicle, so we’re not hoping for a psychological 500kW electrified racer. Of study course, we wouldn’t say no…

That’s definitely the rear of the Ioniq 6, and the spoiler suggests it’ll be going quite fast when it finishes its burnout.

That’s undoubtedly the rear of the Ioniq 6, and the spoiler suggests it’ll be heading quite rapidly when it finishes its burnout.

Yet another teaser picture unveiled on Hyundai’s social media webpages displays the rear finish of the swoopy Ioniq 6 equipped with a race-spec spoiler, indicating it will get a spicier edition as well, likely suffixed N. This will almost certainly get a comparable powertrain to what is anticipated to electricity the Ioniq 5 N, which also could debut on the 15th.

Hyundai has not made available formal particulars however but our cash is on the powertrain from the Kia EV6 GT, which utilizes a 77.4kWh battery pack and two electric powered motors, superior for a blended 430kW and 740Nm. It’ll hit 100kmh in 3.5 seconds, Kia claims, not significantly behind most current supercars.

No matter what Hyundai is scheduling, we’ll have to wait right until the 15th of July to see.
